Description

An issue was discovered in mgetty before 1.2.1. In fax/faxq-helper.c, the function do_activate() does not properly sanitize shell metacharacters to prevent command injection. It is possible to use the ||, &&, or > characters within a file created by the "faxq-helper activate <jobid>" command.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-g3utils
  • suse-upgrade-mgetty
  • suse-upgrade-sendfax
